The Japanese love their fireworks (the kanji for hanabi - 花火 - are  flower and fire). There was a big fireworks show tonight on the Yodogawa River in Osaka. They were pretty spectacular and people oohed and aahed their appreciation, even clapping and exclaiming "sugoi, ne!" ("so cool!") at the most amazing ones.

In addition to multicolor, sparkling, and cascading shapes, there were planets, watermelon, smiley faces, infinity name it. Ok, there weren't any dragons, but I think Gandalf would have approved nonetheless.

Please enjoy these bunnies and kitties!
